First thing to do is figure out if the problem is with the fluidmaster or with the shutoff valve. If the water doesn't run at all after flushing, then instead of cycling the shutoff valve, just loosen the nut where the supply tube attaches to the fluidmaster (under the tank). If the problem is in the fluidmaster, it will start to squirt out at you, otherwise it won't. Then you know what to disassemble and attempt to repair, or replace.

SOURCE: How to adjust water level in tank---Kohler Wellworth toilet

please make sure the water is off!
the fluid master has a slip ring at the bottom of the float base it pulls up then you can adjust the float up or, down and, snap it back down.
at the top of the float you will see a cross-headed plastic bolt; this is adjusted for fine level control using a large conventional philips screwdriver.

Have you recently replaced the fill valve and flapper ?If so make sure they are interchagable and can produce close to the same GPF as original hardware.Fluidmaster has a tall tube that can be cut according to tank depth to accomidate water volume in tanksome times a little more water volume will do the trick.Also make sure flapper is staying open long enough to produce the required results.

SOURCE: We have installed a new fluidmaster toilet repair

Hi dona way,

There are 2 things that can be adjusted to stop the toilet from running. It will keep running as long as the water level does not maintain itself.
First, is the valve at the exit hole in the tank seated completely. You may have to adjust the chain, or make sure the chain doesn't hangup so the valve seats well. Did you clean the opening well before putting the valve on? If there is calcium build up, you may have to sand the opening a bit to give a nice smooth level surface.

Second, Is the water running because the float is set too high and the tank fills past the overflow pipe opening. This also can be adjusted. The instructions that came with the kit should explain how to do this.

Good luck,

I hope this helps. If it does, please place a vote for me. Thanks,

Handie Andie

Hi Juan
Unfortunately we can't see what you can see. The problem must be right in front of you but you are missing it. Eg Parts / Seals in backwards.
If you can't figure it out and it's that urgent then call a plumber.
Good Luck

Ive replaced 3 toilet fill valve with 440a Fluid master fill valves height is good water level good.After a while it sounds like there is leak by from all toilet.Flappers have been replaced. What coul


check the overflow pipe in the cistern tank as some fill valves do not stop completely but allow input of water after the noise has stopped. This allows the water level to rise up and the water to flow out into the toilet bowl. Reduce the water level height by adjusting the cut off level and when the water rises past the new level the increase pressure on the valve will shut it off.

How to mend a running gural vitrifiye toilet cistern


With lid removed, look down into it and remove and replace the black rubber thing in the center. This is the flush valve and is worn to the point where is no longer provides a tight seal allowing water to pass and run into bowl. Also, could be something underneath it not allowing it to seat properly.

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

Dripping overflow from toilet cistern.


there is an adjustment screw ontop of the fill valve assembly. Tighten this down and the water level should stop at a lower level unless the internal mechanism has crusted up.

Toilet cistern doesn't fill up


it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

Modern toilet cisterns without overflowprovision


Most modern flush units have built in overflow protection, if the water level rises above the flush device then water runs into the toilet itself rather than out of the overflow pipe to the outside as in older toilets.

You could always check by taking the top off the cistern and push down the float device with your finger to see what happens!

hope this helps
